Wait for a sale for Xeodrifter

I have good news and bad news about Renegade Kid’s Xeodrifter. The good news is, it’s a lot better than the abysmal Planet Crashers it released in 2012.

I only beat Peggle Blast level 29 because the game glitched

Peggle Blast is the devil. PopCap Games and EA are the devil for making Peggle Blast. In short, a whole lot of evil is going ’round on our iOS and Android devices, and Peggle Blast is to blame. But, if you want to get really specific, it’s Level 29: In One Basket that’s to blame. more »

Ultimate NES Remix seems easier on the 3DS

The 3DS version of Ultimate NES Remix may not be as alluring as the separate Wii U releases or its bundled, physical compatriot, but I’ve noticed something unusual about this collection.

Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker needed this port

The Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor games are probably the most innovative offshoots of the SMT series. Sure, Persona is much more popular, but it also is a fairly typical JRPG.
